Book description

Many of us will be struck by one or more major traumas sometime in our lives. Perhaps you have been a victim of sexual abuse, domestic violence or assault. Perhaps you were involved in a serious car accident. Perhaps you are a combat veteran. Maybe you were on the beach in Thailand during a tsunami, or in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. Or maybe, you are among the millions who have suffered a debilitating disease, lost a loved one or lost your job. This inspiring book identifies ten key ways to weather and bounce back from stress and trauma. Incorporating the latest scientific research and dozens of interviews with trauma survivors, it provides a practical guide to building emotional, mental and physical resilience. Written by experts in post-traumatic stress, this book provides a vital and successful roadmap for overcoming the adversities we all face at some point in our lives.


'[The authors] have written a crisp, user-friendly guide to the latest scientific research on resilience. With a light touch, they illuminate what seems to be every major study in the field over the last 20 years. In reading this short book, one can come away with much like a PhD or MD in the new science of resilience … splendid.'

Source: The Washington Independent Review of Books (

'… an enjoyable and informative read. Those seeking inspiration and hope that adversity can be survived will be reassured; readers who want an overview of contemporary research on resiliency will be nourished by the thorough reviews; and those seeking self-improvement advice will find many promising practices.'


'An important resource for all mental health clinicians and others interested in trauma and resilience.'
